Open Source Hardware Definition Released, First Open Hardware Summit
BoingBoing covers the launch of the "Open Source Hardware Definition" and the announcement of the first Open Hardware Summit. "Open Source Hardware (OSHW) is a term for tangible artifacts -- machines, devices, or other physical things -- whose design has been released to the public in such a way that anyone can make, modify, distribute, and use those things. This definition is intended to help provide guidelines for the development and evaluation of licenses for Open Source Hardware."
